Apple Targeting Pandora, Slacker with Radio Service
Apple is preparing a personalized, online radio service similar to those offered by Pandora, Slacker, and others, reports the Wall Street Journal. Citing people familiar with Apple's plans, the Journal indicated that Apple's streaming music service would work on its iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers, but not smartphones and tablets that run Google's Android platform. Apple is negotiating new licensing deals with the recording labels, reports the Journal, and is looking for better interactivity options with its service than what's currently available from Pandora and similar competitors. However, it will likely be months before any such service might debut. Apple declined to comment on the Journal's story.
Apple's new operating system takes a major step forward in terms of design and functionality. It greatly improves usability, while also introducing some nifty new features.
